Summer School 2019

Parallel Computing in Molecular Sciences

sponsored by


Summer School

The parallel computing in molecular sciences summer school is focused on educating and training a new generation of graduate students and postdocs in molecular sciences in advanced high-performance parallel computing skills on the computing architectures of today and tomorrow, exposing the next generation of science leaders to the state-of-the-art high-performance scientific computing on modern massively parallel architectures.

Attendees are expected to already be proficient in basic scientific programming skills using C/C++/Fortran including editing, compiling, debugging, and translating simple algorithms into functioning code. The summer school will consist of 3 1/2 days of lectures and hands-on exercises, with the opportunity for students to work on parallelizing and tuning their own codes.

Approximately 30 students will be admitted (register here) to the summer school, and travel awards will be available.

A major goal of the summer school will be to develop a diverse and inclusive workforce that is skilled in parallel computing.
